Chase & Status will appear at Newmarket Nights this summer


Electronic dance music duo Chase & Status will swap playing arenas and festivals for the racecourse this summer when they perform a DJ set at Newmarket.

Carrying on from the success of last year’s DJ night, which saw an explosive headline set from Mark Ronson, Chase & Status will be bringing their unique brand of drum ‘n’ bass to Newmarket Racecourse on Friday, August 11.

Having sold over 3.5million records, some of their biggest hits include Blind Faith, Count On Me and End Credits.

With an acclaimed live show, the duo – Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status) – have toured and performed at arenas and festivals across the globe, including headlining festival stages at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Global Gathering.

Also announced for Newmarket this summer are The Jacksons on Friday, June 30.

Amy Starkey, regional director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “We can’t wait to welcome both Chase & Status and The Jacksons to Newmarket Nights for the first time this summer.

“Chase & Status are one of the UK’s most exciting live acts, and I’m really looking forward to the festival atmosphere they’ll bring to the July Course.”

The 2016 season at Newmarket welcomed acts including Little Mix, Tears For Fears, Mark Ronson and the Kaiser Chiefs to the Adnams July Course, collectively playing to over 100,000 fans.

Little Mix, Jess Glynne and Olly Murs have already been announced for Newmarket concerts this summer.

Tickets for Chase & Status will be on sale at 8am on Friday, March 24 via, with a pre-sale available to customers at 8am on Wednesday, March 22.

Tickets are priced starting at £25 adult and £13 child (under-18) for Chase & Status.
